Find out how to explore numbers and develop self-confidence in mark-making using butterfly-style printmaking

This beautiful, creative teaching pack from Earlyarts is designed to help educators improve children’s cognitive, physical, social and emotional development. It encourages practitioners to scaffold children’s interests, opening up a world of possibilities for the imagination as well as providing starting points for shared thinking and discussion across all ares of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Children have been printing with cereal, jam and dirt for probably longer than any of their parents care to remember! But printing with intention, deciding that this will be the way to make your mark today, with a variety of objects, is just the key you need to open up a new avenue of possibilities.

Printmaking is a very collaborative affair helping children to be healthily dependent as well as creatively independent. This enjoyable pack encourages the practitioner to follow their children’s lead to see how they make connections and help develop an understanding of process, cause and effect, and choice. It helps progress their learning right across the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), as well as offering great tips to help you review and plan your next sessions.
